Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Announcing The Primal Kitchen Cookbook!

Two years ago in 2015, I founded Primal Kitchen® because I had a vision—a vision that extended the nutrition philosophy I’d honed with the help of this blog for (then) nearly decade. I wanted to make truly healthy—Primal—eating easier and more convenient. I wanted to create the kinds of products that I would use in my own kitchen—and offer them to others with the same health goals and the same love of amazing food.

Since then, I’ve introduced more than a dozen products that do just that—some of them (I’m very proud to say) award-winning. And I’ve had a tremendous team behind this vision the whole time, helping me offer the very best in taste and nutrition—and doing the work of making Primal Kitchen choices available literally nationwide. Today I get to announce a project that’s evolved within that Primal Kitchen endeavor—an incredible collaboration among my remarkable staff, long-time friends, and even my own children: The Primal Kitchen Cookbook.

21-Day Check-in (and Plug for Instagram)

I’ll be serving up a traditional post soon, but I thought I’d check in and see how everybody is doing. I know we have a LOT of folks participating in the 21-Day Challenge led by my excellent staff. It’s been exciting to watch from the sidelines this week—to see them share their best tips and connect with our audiences.

If you aren’t joining the crew on Vimify (or if you are!), you can check out their Instagram Story videos and photos from the Mark’s Daily Apple, Primal Blueprint, and PRIMAL KITCHEN® Instagram accounts. (Just click on the circle logos when you pull up the app to see the latest additions.) The staff and videos are all different, so you’ll get the most by following all three channels. Definitely worth popping in and seeing what they’re up to!

Have a great day, everybody, and Grok on!
